Cricket Wireless has become the latest US carrier to announce support for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Available starting Friday, June 27, the smartphone costs $540 after a mail-in rebate.
The newly reformed wireless provider, now owned by AT&T, offers unlimited talk and text with 500MB worth of 4G LTE data that starts at $40 per month.
Customers who sign up for the Auto Pay option can save an additional $5 per month, knocking things down to a $35 monthly plan.
Indeed, this is the same Samsung Galaxy S5 that sells everywhere else, except that it costs about $100 cheaper on Cricket. Powered by Android 4.4 KitKat, the flagship model includes a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, 16-megapixel rear camera, and has 16GB of internal storage.
